A GI­ANT MO­SAIC was un­veiled at Kingston Lib­eral Syn­a­gogue, the prod­uct of six months work by con­gre­gants.

In­stalled on a wall at the en­trance to the shul’s new ex­ten­sion, the mo­saic was con­ceived by KLS mem­ber San­dra Web­ber. The 120 KLS mem­bers across the age spec­trum cut and glued the tiny tiles which make up the work. It fea­tures bib­li­cal sym­bols such as the dove of peace — de­signed by 14-yearold Liane Avi­ram — and a tree of life com­pris­ing 613 mir­rored leaves.

The un­veil­ing was per­formed by the Mayor of Elm­bridge, Coun­cil­lor James Vick­ers, and other guests in­cluded lo­cal MP Ed­ward Davey.

Shul pres­i­dent Judy Th­waites said the art­work was “rich in sym­bolic mean­ing”.
